solar charge controller hook-up

My new 15a MPPT controller from China has a pair of terminals for 'load" These 2 terminals are seperate from the 2 battery terminals. No mention anywhere of what to do if you have no load as I am only charging batteries not powering something like a street light. Can I guess if I have no load, don't worry about it?

The load connection is for something you want to supply power to when the batteries are fully charged and you have excess solar power available.

Ignore the load terminals for most marine applications.
