I want to add a column of cells together only if the particular cell is colored green. Can I do this using conditional formatting on a google spreadsheet?

Yes, you can do this with a script (Tools >> Script editor) by using getBackgroundColor() in the Spreadsheet API.

No, Conditional formatting in Google Spreadsheets can only edit text and cell background color. You cannot use it to edit cell values. As Brian P pointed out you can use scripts to do it.
