I would suspect the alternator. You can either charge up the battery and take it into an Autozone or Advance Auto to be checked or remove the alternator and take it in. Call them first to be sure they do the testing in your area.
If it is the alternator, the most cost effective (and best) thing to do is find a good starter alternator shop to rebuild the alternator. If you can't find one you like locally, there is one by me that does a lot of out of state work and does the work for the local porsche dealership. Pm me if you need the address, etc.
