The short answer is: No. The longer answer is, the motor and controls were designed to run on 220 Volts, and as such cannot simply be re-wired for 110 Volts. You basically have 3 options: 1) Have a licensed electrician wire in a 220V circuit to your shop/garage/shed for the compressor. 2) Change out the motor for one designed for 110V (finding one that will work could be difficult, and might require modification of mounts, spindles, gears etc and probably not worth the trouble...but technically possible) 3)purchase a step UP transformer which can turn 110V North American household current into 220V.
you'd have to change the voltage regulator, which is usually inside the motor - on newer motors, if they have a separate Power Supply, you can sometimes change it on a slide switch... keep in mind, that 230 is MUCH more effective for a device made for drawing a lot of power - that motor might draw 8-10 amps at 220, which will be 2x that if you go to 110... so, when all is said and done, it might work out cheaper to just spend like $200 and buy a new 110 unit that is similar... but again, depends what you want to use it for...
The green should be connected to the chassis, it is ground.
There should be a wiring diagram on it to tell you how to do this, but if not:
There may be T-leads on the motor labeled
P1, P2, T3,T4,T5,T8
P2-cap/tape don't use.
T2,T3, and T5 wire nut together
T4,T-8 wire nut together with L2(white)
The power leads will be coming from your switch box on the compressor body itself. Don't wire the 220v directly to the motor, you replace the leads where the first motor was connected on the cutoff switch. There will be only 2 leading from the switch to the motor.
The motor itself should have a sticker which describes the wiring for 115. It is a small change involving a single wire moving from one pole to another inside the motor starter cap (the bump on the motor itself).
