Charging system

Battery light came on today on my 2012 Grand Cherokee Laredo, 3.6L. I stopped at Auto zone and they put it on the machine, results came back as the alternator bad, not producing voltage.

Truck has 49,000 on it, has anybody else experience this?

I'm finding out the rebuilt alternators are not in stock in the local parts store but available online through the stores, very expensive, in the $350 range plus tax. New at the dealer is $505.

Going to go by another place and have them put it on the machine, if it come back as the alternator I guess it would be confirmed. I'm not sure if the system has relays or fuses that may be bad causing the alternator to not put out. Again, any thoughts would be great.
