Why not just use the graphical user interface?

If you haven't locked your widgets, click on ☰ normally found at the end of the Plasma panel, and then on More Settings. You'll now see an option to Remove Panel.

Removing Panel

If you have locked your widgets, ☰ won't be available in the panel. Click on a free space on your desktop and then press Alt+D followed by L to make ☰ visible.

Of course, you may want to add the appropriate command to your Autostart to ensure you'll have the panel of your choice available on start up.

To everyone who despite deleting panels via graphical interface can't get rid of them (they appear again after reboot) as was in my case. You can use this script:

for (i = 0; i < panelIds.length; i++) { //search through the panels
    panel = panelById(panelIds[i])
    if (!panel) continue;
    
    panel.remove()
}

How to run it: hold alt + space and write desktop console run it, inside paste my code and execute it.

Useful resource that helped me write this script: https://userbase.kde.org/index.php?title=KDE_System_Administration/PlasmaDesktopScripting

Different method that i didn't test might include twitching with plasma-desktop-appletsrc file: https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=289&t=165564

This command will stop the KDE Panels:

killall plasmashell

And the Composition Manager and Kwin will keep running, without be affected.

    This appears to kill other parts of plasma such as volume buttons.
