Engine Compartment Electrical burning smell

I was driving home today and the I smelled this electrical burning in the car. It was much stronger outside. I thought it was someone else. I parked in m drive way and about 15 minutes later I went on the porch and could smell the same thing very strongly from around the corner.

Something is going but I'm not sure where to start. I replaced the battery recently and my voltage sits around 12 at idle and never gets to 14. I was wondering if it cold be the alt going out? I took it for another drive this evening and it started to smell again so I turned off the A/C and when I got home I didn't smell it anymore. It doesn't smell like its coming from inside like I see with the other issues related to fan motor wiring.
