Check the belts first for cracks especially the back of the belt where it rides on the pulley.It sounds to me like one has worn out and may be just spinning causing the noise.Now another problem that will cause that noiose is the tensioner pulley.Check that as well.

if it gets louder when the lights are on that means its the alternator belt,and you will have to look under the alternator there you will find the manual tensioner you have to loosen the mounting bolt in order to tighten it with the long tensioner bolt.

It might not need to replace the belt but to adjust (tighten) them. Check for a loose one and adjust it. Does the noise changes or stops if the AC is on or off? Or if you turn your steering all the way to either side?

You need to make sure you have a good drive belt and verify that the tension is working,if all seems normal then get the alternator or the wiring to it tested.

Check your pulleys and make sure they spin alot of times the smooth pulley the guide needs replaced they get locked up with dirt and cause belt to stretch
