The serpentine belt is slipping due to wear, or the belt tensioner is weak. If either the belt or tensioner is replaced - be sure to replace both components at the same time.
The cost of the Belt Drive Component Kit is often less than buying all of the components individually, and replacing all of the components at the same time means you only have to do the job once.

Belt drive component kit (single alternator) = GATES part #90K38257A - or it's equivalent

Unit cost for the kit is around $104.00 from various on-line parts vendors; www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.autopartsanything.com - to name only a few.
