2003 Ford Explorer

This morning the charging system light came on in my 03 Explorer Sport when I was at a stop light. The light only comes on when I'm stopped. When I hit the gas it goes off. The battery is 3 years old and te gauge shows the charge to be low. Is this just time to change out the battery? Thank you in advance for any insight
